Go down Moses
Tell all pharaoes to

Let my people go!
Oppressed so hard they could not stand

Way down in Egypt land
Let my people go!
So moses went to Egypt land

Let my people go!
Way down in Egypt land
Let my people go!
Thus spoke the lord, bold Moses said:
if not I'll smite, your firstborn's dead

Way down in Egypt land
Let my people go!
Tell all pharaoes
